Toyota UK has launched a new top of the line version for the Aygo compact car. Called Platinum, the new version is based on the Aygo+ model and adds: 14-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels, a six-speaker audio system, Alcantara and leather upholstery gear knob as well as Crystal Silver metallic paint.
The new Aygo Platinum is available in either three or five-door versions, both being powered by a 1.0-litre VVT-I petrol engine with Toyota Optimal Drive – winner of the sub-one-liter class of the International Engine of the Year awards for the past three years. Five-speed manual transmission is fitted as standard, with the option of Toyota’s Multimode system.
Toyota is also offering a new Aygo Xtra Protected pack for the new Platinum edition. The package adds: rear parking sensors and additional side and rear protection mouldings to help guard against the rough and tumble of urban driving. Vehicle Stability Control can also be specified as an option.
Prices start at £8995 for the Platinum edition and adds an extra £380 for the Aygo Xtra Protected pack.
